    Coconino Cycles latest creation

    This is the new ride. Steve really did a great job designing and building my rig. Sycip hooked it up with the sweet egg nog paint job.

    I saw that bike, BEHIND ME on the descents, last wednesday night!

    I never saw more than dust ,in front of me, durring the climbs though.

    Beautiful bike, simon, just watch your pp on that top tube.

    I know better than to believe you, when you say, "I will be slow tonight, I have not been on a SS in a while".

    Enjoy, I hope it treats you well,

    Beautiful lines on that frame! The curved top tube coupled with the straight rear triangle is so much more appealing than the strange curved tubes on the back side of a Blacksheep, etc. And the egg nog is wonderful!! How did you choose that color? I'm in the midst of selecting a color for a new frame and am struggling with the spectrum of choices.

    kathleen, steve has a deal with sycip that includes paint with the overall price of his frame. so I narrowed it down to a few colors (creme de la creme also looked cool) and called sycip up to get the real skinny. the receptionist really liked this one. there is actually a little sparkle if it catches the sun right. sycip used it with their java boy bike and there regular unleaded mountain bike if you check out their web site. overall all the color scheme turned out good. syscip made it work with pewter hubs and headset which also rocks.

    Orange! Orange! Orange! Orange! Orange! Orange! Orange!

    At least that's my vote for a new color. Whenever I get a new MTB, that's my color choice.

    The Egg Nog is pretty rad though. Congrats!
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Funny you should mention Orange because that is the current front runner for my new 'moth. But what shade of orange? And do I go with glossy, flat, metallic, sparkles? Lenz's powder coater uses Cardinal finishes. Thankfully, Cardinal just happens to have a warehouse close to my work in Tempe so I'm off to see the color chips in person this week.... Decisions, decisions... And I haven't even started ordering parts yet!

    Edit: Sorry about the thread hijack. Let me say again that Simon's new Coconino is a beauty and probably tons of fun to ride!

    A buddy of mine just picked up a Gunnar in their Bamboo color with silver decals outlined in red. It's totally sweet! I'll post a pic soon if I can get him to slow down long enough.
    You COULD do it on a geared bike, but I wouldn't reccomend it!

    Derailleurs are for failures!

    ... and if we just ... Nice!

    Simon,

    Looking at the pics of your bike on Steves blog made my decision, as I originally ordered a cruiser from him, but wasn't quite sure that I wanted that frame.....

    Mine will be build Ed Zachary as yours, maybe the same color (I like it.....alot) or something just one-off.

    Best looking bike Garro has EVER built, IMO.

    I'm now #6 in his queue!!
